Matt Lucas is an internationally-renowned British comedy performer who acts, writes, produces and directs across a variety of media. He has a highly-innovative approach to his craft, and we’re thrilled he’s made time to chat with Jeremy about his artistic process, in particular the centrality of his relationship to costume.
Exploring his career from the mid-1990’s – including the comedy sensation for which he’s best known: ‘Little Britain’ – Matt describes the costuming process as one of the most important aspects of realising his characters. His close collaboration with costume designers, in particular Annie Hardinge, whose interview with Richard is coming up soon, demonstrates the complexity and excitement of creating unforgettable characters with a true comedy genius.
